    Full throttle into full reverse, AKA the self righting feature, is hard on parts. Don't use it.

    Yes, it is pretty lively on 2S!

    I also got him a Traxxas EZ-Peak Live Dual charger and one Traxxas 5800mAh 2S LiPo. This way he can charge the batteries himself safely without having to worry...

    You learned the hard way like I did. RC Screwz makes garbage stuff and the customer service is just as bad.

    I can't offer motor recommendations. I sold my 1/16th Slash long ago because I hated it. But I did find these in my searches and thought you'd appreciate them if you don't already have this...

    I believe he's asking for a motor recommendation to be used with the Mini E-Revo and this ESC.

    Great idea and it should work well. Just use strong screws - definitely not stainless steel.

    Drag racing comes and goes, but it never stays. Not too many people have fun just driving in a straight line for a few seconds.

    I will say now is as good a time as any to build because JConcepts...

    I don't think that's going to happen, but don't take my opinion on it. Email Castle's customer service and ask them. They will be able to tell you for sure. They are typically quick to respond.

    These B-Links are cool, but they are far too expensive IMO. HobbyWing has this feature built into some of their ESCs and Castle, Tekin, etc should be doing the same. Hopefully the next generation...

    I think I may have misread your post initially. You are using a 5700kv motor not a 7700kv motor as I stated above. The Sidewinder might be fine. According to Castle, from the same link I posted in...

    The Sidewinders are absolute garbage in my experience. Other people love them, but I do not. The Castle X series is much, much better.

    With proper gearing your electronics should have no problem...

    It's good to see more old guys getting back into RC! I've been in and out of the hobby for over 30 years myself and it all started with a Tamiya Hornet.

    The UDR is an awesome truck. Good choice...
